As we enter a new year, we can’t help but think of the many things we are thankful for. We are thankful for a Lord that loves us unconditionally. We are thankful for the many blessings in the past year. We also can’t forget about the incredible staff that shows up every single day. This is the same staff that spent weeks away from their families during the Ebola crisis to care for our children. This is the same staff that loves our kids as their own. The same staff that meets our kids in their most vulnerable places, loves them, cares for them, and disciples them.
We love sharing our amazing staff with you. We actually want to shout about them from the mountain tops, but for now, we’ll share about them on the blog. This month, we are excited to introduce you to Fatmata Jalloh.
Like so many of our staff members, Auntie Fatmata has been a part of The Raining Season for more than ten years. Fatmata serves as one of our amazing caregivers.
Auntie Fatmata holds a diploma in Business Studies from St. Joseph’s Vocational Institute in Sierra Leone. She is a single parent of two children, ages eleven and fourteen. Fatmata became a single parent after losing her husband seven years ago. Amidst the trials, Fatmata has remained dedicated to caring for her children and serving the children at The Raining Season. Auntie Fatmata shared, “I have been striving day in and out to take care of myself and my children.”
As a longtime member of our staff, Fatmata was connected to The Raining Season through the church she attends. A friend shared a job opportunity with her. She applied, interviewed, and soon after accepted the job as a caregiver. Auntie Fatmata’s commitment to The Raining Season is something we are incredibly thankful for. She shared this about her experience with The Raining Season, “There are so many things I like about TRS, but best of all is the relationships I have developed with the kids and my co-workers.”
Thank you Auntie Fatmata for being a part of the Raining Season community. As a valued member of our staff, you are caring, hardworking, and generous.
Join us in continuing to pray for our caregivers and staff. We pray for the impact they have on our children as well as the daily challenges of raising children while also tending to their personal lives and families.
